Dictatorship in this case would mean that the decision making power would lie with a single individual and hence a faster decision making is possible. The ever growing delay for anything is overcome in a dictatorship set up.

Dictator ship also will ensure that the government is stable irrespective of the passage of time. Whereas in democratic setup every 3-5 years elections will have to be conducted which will done by the money provided by the taxpayers. A stable government after years and years is quite possible in a dictatorship.
Disadvantages of dictatorship
Considering the advantages this type of government will give, the lies far serious problems with dictator hip model of formation of government.
But this would mean that the country would run on the whims and fancies of a singular man who will try his best to do everything to make sure he runs in full luxury. He can run the country in whatever manner he likes and further the rights of the citizens to protest against him will be less. Any protests will be dealt with strong power and the press freedom too will be hampered.
We have seen many instances where the dictators have used their powers particularly for accumulating the wealth and live luxury not caring anything about the life of the people in the country.
